Thumbs down-2 Judge orders Microsoft to stop selling Word

On Tuesday, a judge ordered Microsoft to stop selling Word, its flagship word processing software and one of the main components of the Microsoft Office System - namely part of Word 2003 and Word 2007. This also now extends to Word 2010 which contains the same feature set.

That's definitely a

Finally, they realize that Word is like the same program whether you're using 97 or 2007... so why do they keep rebranding it? I like the look and feel of Office 2000 the best and have never had anything that I couldn't do in it... so whether or not the newer versions supposedly have more features, I've never actually seen anyone USE them...

Microsoft will settle with the company that sued them, hand over a big bag of cash, and continue to sell Word having probably only lost a week's worth of profits.

They already settled for $200m on some other matter with them. Chances are M$ will take them over soon to get them out of their hair. The other company has gotten real wealthy using the legal system but sale of M$ Office just keep on going. But, there must be something in it for a US court to judge for the plaintiff.
